A man, his son, and his son’s girlfriend were at a campsite in St. Lawrence Park in Brockville, Ont., Canada. While sitting around the campfire, the girlfriend claimed the Earth was flat. The father said no, it’s round, and the fight got so intense that the participants started throwing things. The unnamed 56-year-old father, from Brockville, topped it all when he threw a propane cylinder into the fire; firefighters and police were called in. The man fled, and is being sought by police. (RC/CBC) ...The Earth is an oblate spheroid, and his head is cubical.
